Trivia

  • Despite being the closest adaptation to the source material than other films, Steampunk still varies slightly from the original comics with a few examples:
    • The film is set mainly in 1954 while a prologue took place in 1854. In the comics, the prologue took place in the 18th century, not 17th and Cole briefly visited 1954 instead.
    • The film features Fiona as a young mill worker who is poisoned by Absinthe, but the comics depict her as a teacher of the lower class who falls ill after her school is burned down.
    • Characters from the comics not present in the film include; Batcat, D. Danforth, Napoleon Bonaparte, Iron Monk, Medik, Mambutu X and the Pestilent Brothel.
      • Of these, D. Danforth, Napolean Bonaparte, and Mambutu X are introduced in future installments.
